Lightweight PET bottle maintaining required bottle performance
Use of lightweight bottles can lead to substantial savings. Even the smallest design alterations can have a big impact on the environmental footprint as well as the total cost of ownership due to a more effective use of resources and lighter transport loads.
For our PET carbonated soft drink segment we have a bottle solution that reduces the bottle weight by about 13%, and at the same time it does not compromise on the performance requirements.
The optimized bottle is made with a new base that makes it possible to save material, while it retains the required performance characteristics in terms of pressure resistance, line efficiency and shelf life.
Envases Universales has the capabilities of producing the lightweight solution on a large scale.
The introduction of the lightweight carbonated soft drink bottle is an example of Envases Universales’ commitment to develop new optimized packaging designs with reduced material consumption.
